Heat In The Chest, Throat And Stomach When You Are 8 Months Pregnant?
In the afternoon, I want to ask about my pregnancy which has entered the age of 8 months, lately I often feel hot in my throat, chest and stomach and accompanied by nausea and vomiting too, when I get to food my chest hurts and runs to my head, I think “why yes .. Thank you love in advance.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
When the womb has entered the age of 8 months, the size of the fetus is generally quite large, weighing about 2000 grams and a body length ranging from 42 to 47 cm. The size of the fetus which is large enough is certainly easier to cause pressure to other organs around the uterus, including the lungs, stomach, and so on.
A burning sensation in the throat, chest, and stomach, along with nausea, vomiting, and headaches as you experience is most likely due to GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). This condition often affects pregnant women due to the engorgement of an enlarged fetus in the stomach and esophagus. GERD occurs when the valve that normally limits the upper stomach to the lower esophagus fails to close completely, causing stomach acid to reflux (backflow) and irritate the esophagus. This irritation is what triggers various complaints as you are experiencing today.
Apart from irritation due to GERD, your complaints could also arise due to gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa), stomach cancer, stomach or duodenal ulcers, cholangitis (inflammation of the bile), coronary heart disease, viral or bacterial infections, psychosomatic disorders, and so on.
If this complaint is not handled properly, the mother's appetite can generally decrease drastically. This condition is certainly not good for the development of the fetus in your womb.
Therefore, it's best before it's too late, you check your complaint directly to a gynecologist. Generally, doctors will first prescribe several types of drugs while teaching you to deal with your complaints with natural treatments, for example:
Eat small portions every 4 to 5 hours, not too full
Limit consumption of caffeine, foods that contain too much gas (for example, tubers, mustard greens, cabbage), fried foods, and spicy foods
Make sure you always eat foods that are cooked and processed hygienically
Don't eat too close to bedtime, but give yourself a break of about 2 to 3 hours to prevent acid reflux into the esophagus
Drink lots of warm water
Don't stress too much
Do not also take drugs carelessly
Don't wear clothes that are too tight against the stomach area
Avoid smoking and consuming alcohol
Apply a warm compress to the throat, chest, and stomach that feels uncomfortable
Hope it helps ..
